|Glad you like the service! Sorry you deleted the answer - here it is again:
"I wouldn't recommend using bleach in a garden bed but since you already have, you shouldn't be too alarmed. The bleach will leach out and/or decompose by the time you're ready to plant your veggies. The major problem with bleach is that it can kill micro-organisms, both the good guys and the bad guys. Healthy soil is teaming with good-guy type micro-organisms so the bleach application has probably compromised their health. A quick fix is to amend the soil with compost prior to planting your veggies. Compost is full of healthy micro-organisms, which should restore the balance in your veggie garden."
